Fresh coats

The most Canadian – and practical – of men's-wear garments, the parka, has been reimagined in oversized silhouettes, unique textiles and utilitarian details. Globe Style took to the streets of Old Montreal to capture the season's novelty outerwear in its natural habitat

On Location: Hotel William Gray

Combining the 18th-century Maison Edward William Gray, Maison Cherrier and a contemporary glass tower, the Hotel William Gray in Old Montreal stands out among the neighbourhood's historic properties. Its guest rooms range from intimate Alcove accommodations to The Residence, a 975-square-foot suite. Amenities also combine the new and old, including Boutique OTH, an on-site concept store, and Café Olimpico, a well-known coffee shop founded in the 1970s. The hotel's latest addition is the Spa William Gray, which opened in late September and includes a Himalayan salt room, German Gharieni spa beds and an outdoor pool.
